Current Joint Actions
In an unprecedented collaboration, the three JPIs on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance, together with European Commission aim to tackle one of the most pressing issues facing society – the presence of pollutants and pathogens in water resources.
The BlueBio ERA-Net Cofund is the result of a collaboration between JPI Oceans and the former ERA-NETS COFASP and ERA MBT, consisting of 30 partners from 17 countries and aims to strengthen Europe’s position in the blue bioeconomy.
Ecological Aspects of Microplastics
The Joint Action Ecological Aspects of Microplastics was launched as one of JPI Oceans’ pilot activities, to study the sources, distribution and impact of microplastics in the marine environment.
Food and Nutrition Security
To foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration and networking in order to accelerate, further characterize and manage the impact of climate change on nutritional make-up of food, and to propose adaptive strategies to secure food and nutrition.
Ocean Carbon Capacities
The JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub Ocean Carbon Capacities will address and reduce uncertainties in the understanding of the ocean’s buffering and carbon storage capacities.
Sea Level Rise
The Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise is a networking platform promoting the generation, synthesis, exchange and integration of knowledge on local, regional and global, historic and future sea level rise.
Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability
For this Joint Action, the Belmont Forum, JPI Oceans and Future Earth have joined forces for this Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability.
Past Joint Actions
Intercalibration for Water Framework Directive
The scientific intercalibration exercise for the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) brought together scientific experts to perform required analyses in the most cost-efficient way.
Multi Use of Infrastructure for Monitoring
The pilot action Multi use of Infrastructure for Monitoring in the North Sea was proposed by The Netherlands in 2012 and the intention was to develop pilot studies to test these on current monitoring activities as soon as possible.
Munition in the Sea
The Knowledge Hub on Munition in the Sea constitutes a multi-national expert group which aims to coordinate research and innovation to assess risks, define priorities and suggest intervention options concerning legacy munitions in the marine environment.
